I loved Aunt Bettie's smile. You couldn't help but smile back. She was such a sweet and gentle person. Uncle Bud do you remember the time I stayed overnight when she was pregnant with Mark? He was moving all around and she was so excited for me to feel him kicking her. I was nervous but she gently lifted my hand and put it on her belly.
